Hooniverse Asks: What Would a Hooniverse Pack for Forza 6 Look Like?

Oh what a world of wonder we live in.
With the advent of modern technology today we can drive pretty much any car we want, on almost any track there is. And we don’t even have to leave the house to do it. Video game driving sims like Grand Turismo, Need for Speed, and Forza have given us virtual access to an amazing world of sights and sounds that’s as close as your living room TV.
Oh sure, we prefer the real deal, but for many that’s just not an option. Hell, it’s not an option for a lot of us most of the time. That’s why we like to race on the TV as well as the track, and if we’re going to race then we need a car—or better, a corral of them. That’s where you come in. As you know Forza allows you to add cars through DLCs and car packs and so along with a virtual experience on the track and behind the wheel it also lets you be a make believe collector too. With that in mind, and considering that you all probably know us pretty well having hung out here for a while, what do you think would be the ultimate Hooniverse Forza pack?

    Toyota Previa S/C All-Trac is a must.

      I think that would be the TST Forza car pack.

      I think mdharrel’s entire garage would be included.

      1. mdharrell Avatar

        The garage is just as fast as some of its contents and may very well corner better.

          With less bits falling off?

            To be honest, the south-facing siding isn’t doing that great.

    A Bristol 404, and with enough contact the spare tire pops out of the fender and rolls down the track. Tim’s wagon. A 4runner that slowly bleeds your bank account to nothing for however long you own it. The zombee.

      The Bristol spare tire idea is incredible. It’d be like an easter egg and would need to have a trophy tied to achieving it.

    HCOTY contestants and [mostly] the winners?

    I think Forza lacks light trucks. As such, I’d love to see some of the SCCA RaceTruck Challenge vehicles. Rangers, Comanches, Mazdas, Mitsubishis. and little Nissans would be hilarious to fling around on the console.

    1. Kiefmo Avatar

      My first vehicle was an ’88 Ram 50 (mitsu captive import). I’d love this.

      1. roguetoaster Avatar

        My first car was also a truck, in the form of an ’89 Ranger XLT extended cab. 2.3L, 5 speed, mmm.

        I was there for one of those races in the picture above, in downtown Des Moines, IA (the gold dome in the background is the Iowa state capitol building). Des Moines hosted a full SCCA racing weekend in the early 1990s (1991-93, IIRC), with everything from Formula Ford through Trans-Am on a 2 mile (or so) street course. The Archers (the Jeep truck) were the ones to beat in that class. That particular race weekend went bye-bye after 1993, when the Des Moines River flooded during race weekend, and the team transports barely got out of town before things got very soggy there.

      The heck with light trucks, I want a Chevy Viking with a 2 speed rear-end and a grain box (and shot brakes to boot)

      1. mdharrell Avatar

        This year’s combine demolition derby and grain truck racing in Lind, WA, is on 11 June:

      What, no Rampage, El Camino, Ranchero… ?

    Going to need a vintage rotary, and it might as well have something a bit extra.

  6. kogashiwa Avatar

    Also you really have to have a ute of some sort.

    AC 427 Frua
    Iso Grifo
    Gilbern Invader
    KV1 and that yellow Ace and Gary electric car
    Monteverdi Hai
    Innocenti Turbo
    Festiva Shogun
    Zombee Racer MGB (my real Hooniverse #1 choice and Pete is awesome)
    DeTomaso Vallelunga
    Chevrolet SS because one of our friends ordered one and it is a magnificent sleeper

    FWIW, I had two 1970 Challengers the same FK5 color as the one in the lede. One of them was a real R/T, with severe rust in the tops of the fenders, but otherwise complete. I paid $80 for it.
    Very Hoonappropriate.

    A hemi-powered W123 wagon — although technically, it should be announced and then relentlessly teased but never actually released.

    1. dukeisduke Avatar

      UR MEEN.

    2. hove102 Avatar

      Also, a 1965 Ford F100 that at some point in the game gets a Coyote 5.0 swapped into it, but that point is completely random and unknown to the user.

    Some Crapshoot vehicles, of course:

      Those make for very capable drift machines when you turn up the boost.

        I was working a lot in a big high mountain cabin off the student season back then. Due to my blinded approach to cars, with cubism being the main theme, I usually chose this one on the PS2 somebody brought with them. I could see high end sports cars crashing off corners and into walls all around me, but my slow, steady lines would grant me a win or two, particularly on the ‘ring. Good times. Also a good virtual car to drive in non-virtual excessive use of spirits.

      Needs to spray the course with virtual Kleenexes for others to avoid.

      Pretty impressive how cheaping out creates Eastern Bloc aesthetics:
      Instantly reminded of that one…

      A whole lada lemons cars ford the bench racers.

    We need at least one eastern box from the 1980’s. Be it a Samara, Polonez, Tavria, Aleko or why not all of them.

    Every race involving the Hooniverse pack should feature a rolling chicane in the form of a Falcon Ranchero running in reverse.

    I’ve put a fair amount of thought into potential additions to Forza 6 (as anyone who has seen my post in the official wishlist thread on the official forum will tell you), and here are the seven – the number of vehicles in a real Forza 6 car pack – that I reckon have the most Hooniversal appeal:
    -1976 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth
    -1982 Mercedes-Benz 300 TD Turbodiesel
    -1974 Mazda Rotary Pickup
    -2015 Ford FG-X Falcon XR6 Turbo Utility
    -1956 Tatra 603
    -2004 Volkswagen Phaeton W12
    -1988 Subaru Justy 4WD

    1. Tanshanomi Avatar

      Yes to all, but especially the Cosworth Vega.
      …and the Rotary truck.
      …and the Pheaeton.
      …and the Justy.
      Yeah, good list.

    2. Vairship Avatar

      How about the Mazda Parkway (a 26 passenger bus with a 13B rotary)?

  16. nanoop Avatar

    Base models, lots of base models, 80ies and 70ies preferred.

      A 4-speed diesel V-6 Oldsmobile Cutlass!

        I really did not need to know about that.

      That or a Puma.

    Oh, also, to tick as many boxes simultaneously as possible –

      That front fascia looks like an Eva…Braun.
      I’ll show myself out.
